Abstract

Different patterns of chronic tissue wasting among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Mari√ęlle P K J Engelen

The aim of this study was to determine whether patterns of tissue depletion were different between emphysema and chronic bronchitis patients and whether these were related to pulmonary function.
